The London Cuckolds

In the Bedlam Faction's production of the Restoration comedy The London Cuckolds, "rubber-faced" is a highly appropriate way of describing the majority of the cast, and that's a problem. Rather than telling a funny story, the actors are begging for laughs at the expense of the script and the characters they play, and it leaves the play cold.

Mr. 80 Percent

With Mr. 80 Percent, director Blake Yelavich and crew do their damnedest to entertain their audience, serving up James Sherman's loopy comedy of romance among roomies in a New York apartment with a lively energy that's winning even when the show works it a tad too hard in the "love me" department.
